Efficient Operating Model

Choosing the right operating model for your company has a significant impact on wheter achieve your strategic goals. An efficient operating model helps you, your employees to meet with the changing requirements set by customers, shareholders and other important stakeholders

Changing market environment and customer behavior and regulatory requirements combined with sluggish economic growth increases pressure to ensure a fit-for-purpose operating model - especially what comes to harmonizating and improving organizations, processes and systems.

We have helped numerous clients to go through fundamental changes in their operating model starting from choosing the right strategic option all the way to implementing and fine-tuning practical details. 

Typical triggers for operating model programs include but not limit to new strategy, upcoming merger of history of M&A, continued poor profitability, regulatory change or upcoming major system change.

Our role is typically supporting the client’s program manager and business leadership in leading the transformation and making the change stick. In addition we typically support sub-streams either as stream leads or subject matter experts.

Connected Supply Chain

We help our customers to develop customer-oriented supply chains which are built on effective and efficient ways of running operations by utilising the great opportunities provided by digitalisation and analytics.

Our view is that future-proof supply chains are based more and more on increasing visibility and transparency, seamless connection of end-to-end planning processes (on strategic, tactical and operational levels), utilisation of real-time information, smart logistics solutions and dynamic supply chain segmentation.

Our extensive research has proven that companies investing in above-mentioned capabilities have reached not only significant cost savings, but have also been able to build new competitive advantages and increased their turnover.

Our solutions combine deep analysis on customer’s operations (inside-out) and bringing external insights and examples on how good looks like (outside-in). Our solutions consist of powerful methods and tools to assess the current state of the supply chain and related development opportunities. Together with our customers we will define the target state and critical capability requirements, as well as create a clear execution plan to reach the target state. We will support the implementation of planned changes and together with customer’s teams ensure the reaching of targeted business benefits.
